A group having a business meeting

NorQuest College is committed to working with agents to actively recruit international students to our diploma, certificate, and foundational programs. Our goal is to partner with reputable agents who will refer suitable students to the college and work closely with NorQuest International.

The agent recruiter application is the first stage in the screening process and does not guarantee that an agreement will be offered. Consideration will be given to prospective agent recruiters based on:

  • knowledge of all the programs, services, and activities offered by NorQuest College
  • screening students to ensure they meet the academic and admission requirements for the programs to which they are applying
  • familiarity with the policies and guidelines of studying in Canada, and applying for a study permit
  • assisting students in completing the application form in English
  • representing NorQuest College in an ethical and trustworthy manner while maintaining a professional image at all times
  • charging little or no fees to students for your educational services

Recruitment cycle

Applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Email us at international.agents@norquest.ca to express your interest.

We recruit agents throughout the year and use an intensive application process.
